Sundays at 11 a.m.

Have you ever wondered how snakes eat, what's for breakfast when you're a turtle, or how a salamander finds a meal? This is the program for you. Watch our exhibit animals enjoy a delicious meal while a naturalist explains their feeding behaviors and taste preferences. Experience the predator-prey relationship in front of your eyes!

There is no charge to attend this program.

Scout_with_birdSpringbrook's Bird Banding Programs

Help capture and release wild birds for this banding research program. Hold in your hand cardinals, chickadees, robins, and more as they are released. The birds are measured, weighed, examined for fat and other health indicators, aged and sexed (if possible), fitted with a light-weight band with a unique number on it and then released. Springbrook's bird banding project is one of the longest and continual bird banding projects in Minnesota.
